Hi community! I am struggling a bit with Flyte + Istio. We are running Istio in our cluster and the Flyte nodes run with the istio-proxy sidecar which doesn't clean up after the nodes of the workflow are complete (successfully or after failure). I found a discussion where it was suggested to use a Pod Task (link). Is this still the right way? I am a bit concerned that if my users don't read my documentation/guideline (quite likely 😂) and use regular tasks I will end up with lots of pods hanging in the cluster. Thanks in advance!
